Digital Economy: Trade and Finance Tour
The Economy Tour starts at the World Trade Organization (WTO) which sets the rules for global trade, including e-commerce, and continues to the International Labour Organization (ILO) which explores the impact of digital technology on the future of work. At the World Economic Forum (WEF), a place where global businesses address regulatory issues, digitalisation and the Fourth Industrial Revolution are the main pillars of its work.
The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) links e-commerce and development via the eTrade for All platform for capacity development, as well as the exchange of expertise. The International Trade Centre (ITC) is the leading organisation in empowering small and medium enterprises in the field of e-commerce. Geneva has a very vibrant start-up scene centred on Fongit, a local innovation incubator.
We will also cross one of the key bridges connecting finance and the sustainable development goals (SDGs) via the International Network of Financial Centers for Sustainability (FC4S) and its annual summit.
